Life Meter Cigarette: Smoke Too Many and It’s Game Over

by Conner Flynn

We can learn a lot from video games. Check out these smokes for gamers. They might just help you quit by incorporating a series of life-meter hearts that showing your current health. At the end of the smoke, they give you the option to continue.


Sadly this isn’t real, but just a concept by designer German Ljutaev. If someone even tried to make it real, some people would whine and claim that it targets kids. No, it doesn’t. It targets older people who are nerds and happen to smoke.

The idea is that it gives you a visual reference that you are doing something dangerous each time you light up, using a gamer theme. Admittedly, it would probably encourage nerds who smoke to smoke more. Only because when we are asked to “Continue Y/N” we are too used to hitting continue. It’s a great design though.
